BlackArmor® implants by icotec

icotec is a global leader in radiolucent implants. The nonmetallic, radiolucent BlackArmor® material developed by icotec is biocompatible, and has been successfully implanted for over 15 years. Its X-ray translucency allows better delineation of the tumor from healthy tissue, optimizes radiotherapy planning and tumor treatment, and facilitates follow-ups.1

The icotec Pedicle Systems are not available in the United States.

High Tech. Human Touch.

Coating for More Integration

The Ti-iT® commercially pure titanium coating from icotec enables bony ongrowth to the implant. Bone tissue attaches and integrates safely into the surface of the implant due to the rough structure.1
